Barack Obama on sequestration
February 19, 2013
President Obama, sequestration, Spending, taxes What a difference a year makes: You wouldn’t know it by listening to Barack Obama today with the threat of sequestration hanging over the head of America, but he is the one who proposed sequestration and he is the one who threatened to veto any attempt at avoiding the automatic spending cuts in 2011.

In 2011 he vowed to veto any attempt at getting rid of the sequestered spending cuts, claiming there would be no easy off-ramps to avoid the spending cuts.

Now that his sequestration policy is in place and the election is over he has a different position: Now he claims these changes, not well thought through and not phased in properly, will result in impending doom. Seeing as how this is his policy does that not mean he did not think things through properly?

All libs are invited to hear this video, that is, if they have the "guts" to listen!

Here is a video that highlights Barack Obama on sequestration then and now:

I'm pretty sure when this all went down Boehener said he got 98% of what he wanted and the last time I checked 175 republicans voted for it and only 90 democrats.

I don't believe you are the authentic GBA.
What was the date for "when this all went down?" I believe you could be referencing another vote instead of the vote on the sequestering.
Also, you are off the subject. What my post & video shows is that OBAMA in 2011 claimed he was all for it & he'd enforce sequester, but in 2013 he's blaming the republicans for sequester and demanding that the reps change things so sequestering will not happen.
It's kinda like OBAMA was for sequestering b4 he was "aginn " it.

Right after the fiscal cliff deal, this was what averted the going over the cliff.Boehner said he got 98% of what he wanted.

Speaker Boehner publicly supported the sequestration before the president signed it into law. The Daily Beast recently dug up a PowerPoint presentation sent out from Boehner’s office to the Capitol Hill GOP on July 31, 2011, laying out support for the sequester.

A slide from the final page of Speaker John Boehner's Powerpoint to House Republicans on July 31st, 2011

Sets up a new sequestration process to cut spending across-the-board—and ensure that any debt limit increase is met with greater spending cuts—IF Joint Committee fails to achieve at least $1.2T in deficit reduction.
If this happens, POTUS may request up to $1.2T for a debt limit increase, and if granted, then across-the-board spending cuts would result that would equal the difference between $1.2T and the deficit reduction enacted as a result of Joint Committee.
Across-the-board spending cuts would apply to FYs 2013-2021, and apply to both mandatory & discretionary programs.
Total reductions would be equally split between defense and non-defense programs. Across-the-board cuts would also apply to Medicare. Other programs, including Social Security, Medicaid, veterans, and civil & military pay, would be exempt.
Sequestration process is designed to guarantee that Congress acts on the Joint Committee’s legislation to cut spending.

This is a video that most libs would NOT watch.
They don't have the guts to see their leader with an ever expanding nose length!

You guys really should research a little more before you copy and paste someone else's opinion.

I have a feeling Hummingbird will make you look like idiots everytime if you don't do your homework.

Why of course. Obama & the libs are NEVER, NEVER wrong!!!!
You wouldn't admit to if you "WAS" wrong, now would you? I can tell you for "sue" it isn't edited. For one thing I remember what he said back in 2011. The videos are on my first post of this thread. Poor baby.

You missed the point. Obama was for the sequestor before he was against it actually taking place!

I don't accuse you of lying. You are just to "bull headed" to accept the truth.

No, once again you miss the point in your effort to be "loved" by the "leftys." I don't deny that the repbs are a bunch of cowardly mealy mouths. I don't deny anything that these blinded by loyalty to OBAMA have said about the repbs in the congress on this thread. I am just saying to folks like you & and your other "innocent" dumbells to watch the video I have posted for you
in my introductory post on this thread. It shows OBAMA, in 2011, vowing to block reps if they try to legislate to keep the sequestor from kicking in. Fast forward to 2013, NOW. The video shows him blaming the repubs for not coming up with legislation to
stop the sequestor.

Actually your leader is a "class act." He the most skilled politician to ever occupy the WH. He has not only got his blind followers "eating-outof-his hand", but he has imasculated
the republicans to where they are nothing but impotent. Actually the repbs seem to no longer exist. Of course, he has not single handily accomplished this feat. He's had lot's of help. Interesting to note that he seldom governs, but campaigns non-stop.

Your wrong about the editing. We tried but we couldn't get NBC to do the job. They said they work for you only.

I watched the video. I also read many articles on the subject. The fact is that the video IS edited in that it shows only a snippet of the 2011 speech. Did the idea come from the White House? Yes. Did they ever intend it to come to fruition? No. Look it up on politifact. They will tell you this accusation is "half-true."

The bottom line is that you have a habit of posting inflammatory, one sided pieces such as this without getting the whole story. You do it constantly. Most of the trash you paste on this forum I don't even read anymore. You want to blame Obama for all the ills this country is facing? Fine. He's not my favorite person either, but at least get all of the facts. You know what I blame many of our problems on? Misinformation. And you, Mr. South are the topix king of proliferating misinformation.

And for you to make a statement like this, "I can tell you for "sue" it isn't edited", makes you the obvious dumbell here.

I tell you what. You seem to have a problem with me and that's fine. I don't care much for you either. It gets old having you and GBA trying to bait me into an argument with your "feminazi" and other idiotic comments all of the time. You're both a couple of old fools whose minds are filled with meanness and bigotry.

So unless you can reply to something I have to say without an insult included in your post, kindly just ignore what I have to say and refrain from commenting at all. Thank you.

No way "HOSSAZY." I love u 2 much to ignore u.

I notice you did not say what was edited out that would, as you claim, change the fact that the BIG O campaigned FOR in 2011, & campained "AGGINN" in 2013. You might want to run this matter by NBC. As you know, but would not admit, they have proven themselves "experts" at editing news stories.
